Abstract

This position paper proposes a design approach for a "human diminishing device" to generate much more realistic experience of being the physically challenged, such as hemiplegic patients, in comparison to existing simulation suits, and refers to significance of the ghuman diminishing deviceh to let an able-bodied person rediscover its ability "covered" in daily life and exploit the ability more actively.
